Motorola Adds Streaming Content Start-Up to Its Playlist
Motorola announced Wednesday that it is scooping up Zecter, maker of the cloud-based ZumoDrive and ZumoCast services. The technologies use a virtual file system to make cloud-stored content accessible as if it were stored on the device itself.
As part of the deal, terms of which were not disclosed, Motorola said it will halt distribution of ZumoCast while it updates the software. Current customers can keep using the service. ZumoDrive distribution and use won’t be disrupted, Motorola said. The acquisition will become part of Motorola Mobility. (For those who have forgotten, Motorola is in the process of splitting itself in two, with Motorola Mobility being the cellphone-making unit.)
